COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew our beer in New York, about halfway between the hop fields of the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields of Kent, England. So we use earthy English hops to build the foundation and bright citrusy American hops to bring the noise in the rambunctious IPA we call BLAST! British Maris Otter and German Pilsner malts lends solidity, balance and bready flavors to brace up a beer thats beautifully hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. Minerally hop bitterness is followed by a shock wave of flavor and aroma. You wont even know what hit you.

Malts: Scottish Floor-malted Maris Otter, German Pilsner Malt

Hops: Willamette, Magnum, Cascade, Fuggle, Aurora, Zythos, Bravo, Simcoe, Sorachi Ace, Amarillo, Experiment 6300

I love this beer. Bought a "growler" of this last night, and been drinking it tonight. Nearly gone. 9% ABV? Oh yeah!!!

maledictum (774) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - FEB 27, 2017
Spicy hop aromas are a bit one-dimensional. This beer is candy sweet while also packing a bitter, abrupt finish. An initial hop bite is followed by a hoppy/caramelly center. With little finish, this is a short beer with a unique palate.

VueltaBirrista (94) - Murcia, SPAIN - NOV 4, 2016
De color meloso, estamos ante una cerveza muy cremosa, espumosa y con 8,4 % ABV al que hay que respetar si no te quieres llevar ningn sobresalto. Todos y cada uno de los elementos empleados aporta su granito de arena, para dar como resultado una cerveza poderosa y rotunda, que no deja indiferente. En su aroma predominan los frutos ctricos como limn, pomelo, incluso naranja y tambin percibo mucho pino. En boca tambin estn muy presentes las frutas cidas como ctricos, pia o kiwi y las maltas suavizando todo el conjunto, todo como muy bien recogidito, sin dejar nada al azar. Adems, para tratarse de una Doble IPA, su amargor resulta mas bien contenido.

La brasserie Brooklyn nous habitue de trs bons produits, et celui-ci ne droge pas la rgle. Belle couleur or/orange lgrement trouble, carbonatation moyenne avec une mousse fine. Au nez aucun doute, nous avons ici une double IPA. On sent trs nettement les agrumes, en particulier le pamplemousse et le citron vert, et on dcle aussi des notes de pin et de fleurs. Lalcool est moyennement prsent au nez. En bouche, on retrouve ces parfums dagrumes mais aussi lamertume des cpres, lalcool est assez neutre malgr les 8.4%, et cette bire est relativement sucre ce qui est presque dommageable pour une IPA. Lamertume est longue, elle colle bien au palet, le got global est trs droit, la finale trs sche, malgr une texture assez souple et huileuse. Une bire assez simple en fait, avec des gots et des saveurs trs distincts, sans vraiment de complexit. Une bonne double IPA qui ne va pas non plus nous renverser.
